The restaurant plans to re-open on Wednesday, manager Marchi Palloni said Tuesday evening.
"Everything is fine now. We just need to make sure that everything is under Health Department laws," he said.
The restaurant, whose slogan is "make food not war," received two other poor health ratings this summer. On Aug. 22, health inspectors found roaches, flies, evidence of rats and "inadequate personal cleanliness." The restaurant received 52 points then.
Several Yelp reviewers described Boom as a hot spot for live music, dancing and people watching, but not dining.
"Come here for the eye candy … not the food," one reviewer wrote.
WOIA News 4 reports that Goro’s Sushi was served 25 demerits on its latest health inspection. 30 is considered a poor score by the health department. But rats and roaches are a big problem.
Goro’s owner, Mike Luna, did not want to be on camera. Trouble Shooter Mireya Villarreal tried to ask about the restaurant’s inspection report. But all the owner would say is, it wasn’t a good time and our crew needed to leave.
Goro’s later sent News 4 WOAI a statement saying they immediately called their pest control company and thoroughly cleaned the restaurant once they were notified of the problems.
An inspector recently followed up with the restaurant. While the report noted improvements, it also asked management to keep monitoring their rodent activity.
